Neesson during a roundtable interview with a number of other journalists. During the group interview Neeson talked about how the sequel came together, what it was like filming in Istanbul. They set it in Istanbul and he thought, ok that’s certainly one city I would love to see. What surprised you the most about working in Istanbul? Either the under ...

So he got an approx distance, as he estimated the speed of vehicle (using sound of engine maybe?), and he counted the time. So distance is speed x time. Plus he noted the turns he made, so it gave him a rough idea of angle. Using simple mathematics (sine rule i ...
